The Bible can be an intimidating book, especially if you try to read it from cover to cover. Pastor Rob explains how the Bible is really God’s letters of love to us and why we need to study it. He also describes a method of reading the Bible that helps us study and understand what God’s trying to tell us in its various books.
The purpose of Lent is to refocus our hearts and minds on Jesus. But what does that really mean? Pastor Rob breaks it down by addressing these questions:
What are Lutherans? What is Lent? Why do some churches not eat meat on Fridays? Is fasting only giving up food? What are the details of the season of Lent?
Investing in relationships the way God wants us to means shifting from an inward focus to an unconditional outward focus. It’s not just about meeting people; it’s more about how you’re think about meeting people on the inside – is the relationship about you (inward) or them (outward)? Pastor Rob explains how Inward vs. Outward thinking affects everyone involved in our personal relationships.
It’s easy to serve others when you like them or feel bad for them. It’s much harder when you don’t like, or even hate them. How can we experience and then live out God’s desire for us to love and server everyone, even those we don’t like or can’t find common ground with? Pastor Rob explains all of this in today’s message.
“Sticks and stones might break my bones but words will never hurt me.” We’ve all heard this as kids. As adults, we know this is a lie. Words can sting and their judgmental impact can last a lifetime. Jesus shows us what it means to be non-judgy. It is our desire to emulate this characteristic in our daily lives and relationships as the people of South Lake church. Pastor Rob explains all of this in today’s message.
